Jayhawk commitment switches pledge to KSU

January 23, 2003


Rashaad Norwood won't be coming to Kansas University, after all.

Norwood, a 6-foot-5, 211-pound tight end/defensive end from Kansas City (Kan.) Schlagle High who orally committed to KU, Wednesday changed his mind and gave a pledge to Kansas State.

"He's decided that it's Kansas State," Schlagle coach Steve Szczygiel told "Rashaad called Kansas and told them that he was going up at K-State. ... KU and coach (Dave) Doeren did all the right things, but I think Rashaad decided he wanted to play for national championships and in big bowl games."
